Arsenal miss Emmanuel Adebayor when he is not in the side, according to Arsène Wenger.
 
The 23-year-old striker has had his critics since signing from Monaco in January 2006 however he did his best to silence them with two strikes against Tottenham on Saturday. The second of which was an early contender for goal of the season.
 
Afterwards his manager re-iterated his value to the current set-up.
 
"Some people have doubts about him, yes," said Wenger.

"But when he is not in the side you see that a lot of presence goes out of the team. Sometimes he was frustrating because he can miss an easy chance but on Saturday he showed the type of chances he can take. He is a constant threat in the air."
